Mid Morning Matters finale

I've been scratching various parts of my body trying to work out which famous painting this is a parody of. One of you people must know the answer!

Hi Dave, thanks, but the image Coogan uses (in the link) is a parody of a specific painting and I can't find it despite my attempts.

Given his head position it seems likely to be being taken down from the cross/entombed rather than showing his wounds I guess?

Something like: https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/437156

edit: but it looks annoyingly familiar...

I think it is a picture of Jesus showing his hands to one of his disciples to prove that he has risen from the dead. I'll have a quick look myself...

In reply to abr1966:

Sorry about that old bean.

In answer to everyone in the picture it is copying, the poses of the subjects are identical. This is a literal copy of the painting. Driving me slightly mad too. Internet forums on the subject are unsatisfactory...

That was my immediate thought but its not the right one.....!!

In reply to Frank the Husky:

I know the painting....that's why its so frustrating!!

I immediately thought something renaissance but a niggling doubt is that its something pre-raphaelite as reworking of something by one of the old masters...?!

Thought I just had it with The Transfiguration by Raphael.....close but not the one! This will come to me when I have a drink.....an hour and a bit till I knock off work and I'm feeling positive....

In reply to Frank the Husky:

Head angle is the same as a number of pictures of St Sebastian. But the stigmata would be replaced by arrows in those pictures...

It's driving me up the wall - I hereby give up!.. I'm sure I've seen it.  Trouble is, there's only so much Roman Catholic misery I can take at a sitting before i feel the overwhelming need for cold beer and pizza!

similar to st Francis receives the stigmata, but not exactly the same.
